"I stand together with the #MeToo victims and will support them to the end but I never felt my story was part of it, because I wasn't one of those traumatised women and it was their voices that needed to be heard."

"I read Balzac and Nana (the story of a high-class prostitute by Emile Zola) when I was 13. I was playing characters in my head and meeting sophisticated older men was a game.

"In some sense, I thought I was a courtesan. But I was little, they shouldn't have done it..."
